If you’re looking for ways to save moneyor enjoy more efficient water heating, consider these advantages of choosing a tankless water heater for Calgary homes.

Hot Water is Always Available

Since a tank heater doesn’t heat water instantly, it must always keep water at the same warm temperature. Once you’ve used up that heated water, your hot water will run out. A tankless water heater heats water instantly so you can enjoy having more hot water.

Takes Up Less Space

Because tankless water heaters don’t need to store already heated water, they are available in much smaller sizes than tank heaters. Smaller units are called “point-of-use” heaters and can beinstalledin a cabinet or right next to the water outlet you’re using it for. “Whole-house” heaters are larger and can heat water for multiple outlets, but are still less than half the size of a tank heater.

Last Longer & Can’t Flood

Tank heaters have a lifespan of around 10-12 years, while tankless water heaters are known to last up to 20 years. If you’re staying in the same home for a long time, this can save you a lot in replacement fees. Also, since tankless heaters don’t store water, there’s no risk of flooding.

Save Money on Heating Bills

The money-saver of a tankless water heater is that it doesn’t experience “standby heat loss,” or the continual heating of water even if you don’t need it. This means the electric or gas energy that heats the water is only used when you need hot water. This results in big heating bill savings every month.
